Follow these steps:

1) Copy showcase-child directory from inside showcase/themes to wp-content/themes directory and activate it. Go to Appearance -> Menus and set your desired Primary menu.

2) Create functions.php in showcase-child directory and paste this code:


add_image_size('index-thumbnail', 298, 244, true);

3) Copy showcase/loop.php to showcase-child/loop.php and edit it.


<?php the_post_thumbnail(); ?>


<?php the_post_thumbnail('index-thumb'); ?>

That’s it.

Refresh your site’s homepage and you should see clearer and correctly sized featured images. If not, regenerate thumbnails.

  1. Sridhar — have you ventured out on your own, or are you with another wordpress group like WPMUDEV? I have a question I’d really like to ask you in private re: ithemes vs. WPMUDEV. If you wouldn’t mind … would you please email me with a way I can contact you privately? I would greatly appreciate it.
